Fresh Fish Chapala Style @ El Gato Negro
Assuming the fish of the day is something good and local, this is among the best Mexican entrees around town. It’s pan seared with roasted squash, bell peppers, and avocados, all pulled together by a spicy salsa. What brings excitement to the food at El Gato Negro (“the black cat”) is the marinating, seasoning, and grilling, all uniquely accomplished. Specials are of great interest, bringing to the table Caribbean lobsters now and then.
